AI and Camera Based Work Zone Intrusion Alert Systems

Carolina Artificial Intelligence Systems LLC (Carolina-AI) offers a range of camera-based vehicle intrusion detection systems that are geared towards the needs of work zones.

Our Technology for Detecting Work Zone Intrusions

We offer a range of camera-based work zone intrusion detecion and alert systems. Our devices are capable of differentiating between various object types (vehicles versus people; authorized versus unauthorized vehicles), therefore false alarm rates are minimal.

  • We use state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms to analyze the area that is being monitored
  • Our devices can be used for various purposes: from work zone intrusion detection to work zone vehicle exit alerts
  • Our software can run on any hardware platform. We can develop customized solutions that integrate with your existing systems.
  • Camera sensors can be mounted on poles, moving vehicles, or on tripods.They can be positioned at safe locations distanced from the dangers of the active traffic.

Simple-to-deploy, cost effective systems with timely customer support service.

Traffic and Urban Area Sensors

Smart camera-based sensors for all your data collection needs including vehicle, bicycle, and pedestrian counts. Custom design event detection capability.

  • Dynamic reports and dashboards
  • Easy to Use Report Templates
  • Privacy-minded: no images or videos stored (unless it is needed)
  • Onboard data processing
  • Breakdown of count data in categories such as cars, busses, trucks, motorbikes, and more

Uses state-of-the-art AI technology to detect the objects in the scene. Ability to customize the geometry of the area being detected.

Citadel PRO

Our Most Advanced Camera-based Work Zone Vehicle Intrusion Detection and Alert System

  • Uses a camera and AI-based object detection technology to detect intrusion events that occur up to 3,200 feet (1 km) away from the workers
  • You sinply draw the shape of the restricted work zone on the device screen. Alarm will sound when a vehicle enters into the area you drew.
  • No false alarms triggered by work zone trucks. System can recognize authorized vehicles and does not generate an unwanted alarm if needed. The workers or animals entering the restricted areas will not trigger an alarm (unless wanted)
  • No data connection costs: Does not require Internet connectivity. No subscription costs
  • Generates audio and visible alarms to alert workers.
  • Records the video of the intrusion incident together with a time stamp. Extra cameras can be added if video recording from multiple angles are needed. Video recording function can be disabled if needed.
  • Flexible mount and deployment: the system can be deployed on a stationary mount or a moving platform. Suitable for both moving and non-moving projects/activities.
  • Can be customized to connect with other Citadel sensors and alarm units to cover larger and more complex work areas.
  • The device kit provides one portable alarm station that can be placed closer to workers. The alarm station receives signals from the sensor wirelessly.
